When I buy a premade pepper cream sauce at the grocery store it tastes good enough. It is peppery, creamy and salty. But when I try to make this myself I can't get it to taste at least neutral salty or peppery. Either the taste is really weak or too strong.
I use this recipe:
- Put dairy butter in pan (low heat)
- Put some flour in it (give it a stir)
- Put some water from the pan with vegetables in it
- Add grinded pepper (all seasons)
- Add peppercorns
- Add salt
Now I could experiment, but I've done so a lot. The nice peppery creamy taste comes in very late when I make it myself. When I buy it premade it always tastes salty and creamy immediately and then the peppery kicks in. How do they do this? How can I make the taste better; what am I missing?
